Hello Everyone. We’ve been full of a very nasty flu these last ten days or so here at Brittle Star. Trust us, you don’t want details, but it explains why you’ve not heard too much from us lately. We’re really sorry about that because we do like to have a good old chat with you and encourage you to submit to the magazine or get your entries in for the Poetry & Short Story Competition.
We’re on the mend now (although still a bit washed out) and we just want to let you know tomorrow is our competition deadline. If you want to get your entries in you have until at 12 Midnight to enter online, and postal entries should be postmarked 14 March. We’re manning and womanning the computers so if you have any problems do drop us a line. Click here to enter http://www.brittlestar.org.uk/competition-2/
Our judges Pascale Petit and Nicholas Royle have been brilliant helping us to spread the word, but you, our lovely writer-friends, can also help us by sharing the link with anyone you think might want to enter. As you know, we’re volunteer-based and not for profit which means money raised from the competition goes back into producing the magazine so your entries are a massive help to us. First prize is £250 + publication + a reading in London.
Click HERE to enter – it only costs £5 and you could win £250. (And don’t forget if you subscribe or become a Patron you get a free entry).
